Following last year’s success of its first charity advent calendar, social enterprise Advent of Change is expanding its range to five beautiful charitable products: a standard charity advent calendar, a new premium charity advent calendar, a child-friendly charity advent calendar, an all-year-round wall charity calendar as well as a braille charity advent calendar.
By the end of 2018, Advent of Change had raised £100,000 for its 24 chosen charities. Its founder, 27-year old Kristina Salceanu from Warwickshire, hopes to more than double the amount raised last year, and help a total of 72 charities – 48 more than in 2018.
Advent of Change supports a wide range of charities and each day, when opening an advent window, you find out exactly how what you’ve given helps – from clearing turtle habitats, to offering shelter to a homeless person, and even helping to provide life-changing medicine for a sick child.
What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than contributing 24 donations to 24 incredible charities that can help make a difference in the world?
